7:20 am
under greg williams said yeah, we used to do this here as well. phillip daniels still with the red skins said he was paid for four sacks he had against dallas, fine line pay for incentives go out and get a sack turn over, that sort of thing pay to injury and carry a guy off a field is another story whatsoever. greg williams and saints when they played brett favre, they took out brett favre, he didn't go out of the game tough guy they injured his ankle, he said that's football that is just the way it is the players don't seem to be that upset about it but i think the general fan base when they hear the extent this is going on they are kind of stunned i think that is what you are finding out the true culture of the nfl inside that locker room is very different maybe from the public perception i remember guys in the 80s used to have towels on their jersey with numbers and would cross them out as they knocked them out of games this has been going on for decades it will be very interesting to
7:21 am

7:22 am
>> there has not been a rule in place that specifically says you cannot play a player for injuring or knocking another player out of a game. >> no, probably would have been understood but the fact they didn't have it written down at all i guess you could go to your union. >> that might factor in. >> absolutely >> i am with the facebook writer who said it is probably going to be a full year suspension i think at least that. >> wow i tell you what if they suspend greg williams a whole year they will have to look at a lot of other teams and find out what they have been doing. i am not saying it is okay but they have been looking for guys like greg williams, they designate and target quarterbacks each and every week. just the life of the nfl. >> thank you gave ross. >> talker for sure. >> it is. >> 7:22 a.m. on monday morning, bp may have avoided a trial with victims of the oil disas inner the gulf but the -- disaster in the gulf

7:33 am
vicinity of fredericksburg south of fredericksburg, an inch or two because of that our counties including orange county under a winter weather advisory. washington i think we probably will see, at least a little snow shower activity here, by 10, 11:00 a.m. this morning. if you are headed down 95, towards richmond there could be slick spots enough to coat the roadways and grassy surfaces. sunshine by afternoon this will be a quick mover your forecast today, lots of clouds around chance for that snow rain mix that will be south of the city, just far enough north even here in washington, at least some snowflakes, instead of snow showers by late to mid-morning. we will do that later today when the sun breaks out. cold overnight, below freezing, 30, yeah, hard to believe it is march. if you want springtime to return i promise it will wednesday and thursday, back

7:35 am
the topic iran's nuclear program over the weekend president obama said he will not hesitate to use force when necessary to defend the united states and its interests joining me to talk about the latest the coexecutive director of the center for world religions, citizen diplomacy and conflict resolution at george mason university. >> you mastered the name by now. >> yeah, the longest title of any guest we have here. let's talk about the meeting today the president sounded tougher yesterday than he has been sounding. um, what is the tone of this meeting likely to be between the president and prime minister? >> the meeting yesterday with the speech president obama did yesterday, a little bit about the meeting to day he was welcomed warmly in apik something not necessarily expected. however, his tough stand on iran, got him a lot patience and therefore the meeting today
7:36 am
with prime minister netanyahu will be a good meeting still differences. israel will still push for an early strike on iran as we heard yesterday, president obama said that is not something the u.s. is interested to do at the moment. still a place for diplomacy he doesn't think it is time he doesn't hesitate to use it in future. >> how open -- i shouldn't say how open do we think israel will be open to delaying things longer to let these international sanctions kick in and have an effect. >> israeli government doesn't see it as an expressed interest it is either if there is a strike in iran it should happen sooner than later however it is also constrained by there being american decisions there will be negotiations happening however there are some people who believe israel might actually strike iran. which would be rather amazing. in some ways if israel does that, let's say they take
7:37 am
military action without u.s. support you know because the u.s. isn't happy with the timing of it what does that do to u.s. israeli relations. >> that happened before it is not the first time it happened with iraq nuclear attack and did it on its own and didn't hurt the american israeli relations this time, it is a little more complicated because how much does it put american soldiers in the gulf in harm. depending on the iranian response, many believe it is not going to be a harsh response it will be very contained. if an attack on american soldiers can prove costly then the u.s. relationship would not be good after that. with the president indicating yesterday and in an interview he did end of last week with the atlantic magazine with the president indicating that military action is an option even for the u.s., sit just a matter of time before
7:38 am
there is in fact military action. >> there is a belief within the u.s. administration obama administration it is still too early there is still a diplomatic way to move on, especially with what happened recently with north korea. north korea is more radical in some ways with iran and they were able to reach some agreement that is scaring israel they don't believe iran will be in the same direction but you are also looking at complications in the region the region in the middle east is very unstable at the moment and you have the straight of hormuz and the possibility of gas prices going really high we are in an election year, a war can be devastating to president obama now looking better in the election so he doesn't want the prices of oil to double or triple if the straight of hormuz is closed. if the nation goes into war, they sold weapons to azerbaijan
7:39 am
recently, you have a lot of complications. how long might it take for sanctions to have a desired effect? >> at least -- it is starting to take an effect you can see some effects on it on the iranian regime but will take a couple more months at least to start kicking in, how much will the iranian regime be effected themselves is still a question because, normally it is people who get effected by it when people get effected by those sanctions they stand with the regime against outsiders that is also likely to happen if a strike happened on iran the green movement who stood against the current government they will side with their government they will feel outside attack >> i suspect we will have you back again to talk about this and see how the meetings at the white house go today. thanks for coming in. >> thank you. >> allison back to you.

8:18 am
companies from abandoning his radio talk show, pro flowers is the latest advertiser to pull commercials, limbaugh called the woman a prostitute after she testified on insurance coverage for birth control. it is one of the debates on conservative social values over shadowing economic concerns in this year's race for the white house. is the legislative branch of the federal government over stepping into issues that belong before the judiciary branch controversy over birth control access continues to rage in congress should issues, concerning violations of religious freedom be settled by the supreme court instead. joining oceanus, constitutional expert, also the associate dean at american college of law thanks for being with us. >> thanks for having me. >> this is a big old issue the first we question wanted to ask is this being handled in the correct branch of our government. so far it is.
8:19 am
the supreme court said historically the free exercise clause, what so many folks are up in arms about protects ability of individuals to free the exercise of religion if you have a law of general applicability, and neutral law of general applicability, so far this has been playing out in congress only and not the courts because the courts instant is laws like these don't implicate the free exercise clause or squarely exercise the free exercise clause. >> this is stemming out of the health care legislation put in place by president obama in 2010 does that give it a platform to be looked at at this branch and not the supreme court if you will. >> for now obviously there is another big case as we know, coming to the supreme court but if you see the contraception coverage as part of the larger goal of congress, which was to
8:20 am
lower the cost of health care for everyone provide access to health care for everyone i see this as one piece of a much larger puzzle as opposed to a specific effort by congress, that is not the case what in fact is going on administration is saying here is how this general rule, designed to reduce costs for everyone, especially for women who are contemplating the possibility of pregnancy, how does this general rule effect religious institutions the law exempts houses of worship and even for religiously run hospitals and universities, the law says we won't make those churches pay we won't make those universities and hospitals pay we will make the insurance companies pay if that is the position the argument will be that doesn't substantially burden religious practice. >> is this in your opinion, does this infringe upon religious freedom? >> you know it might marginally infringe on religious freedom
8:21 am
the supreme court is careful to say we will tolerate marginal inferentialment on religious freedom d -- inen frommeningment on religious freedom. we will run into the establishment clause which forbids the government from favouring religion in this contest i think that is a tricky dance the congress, the president always has to walk in the area how do we protect religious freedom without going to say we value religious freedom. just as a casual viewer of what is going on, not even an interviewer, talking to you today, my question becomes if this bill just says that you can offer birth control not that you are forced to offer birth control, is there a fine line there or something not said, that the administration could say we are not forcing you to do this just allowing people who work under you, you
8:22 am
know where is the line gets blurry. >> administrations point is just that. the administrations point is that we are not requiring any individual to consume contraception all we are saying for religiously run hospitals and universities if you have employee who is would like to pursue contraceptive devices and medication you should require the insurance companies to cover that part of the administrations argument is there are lots of studies that show in fact contraception is cheaper than carrying the direct and indirect effects of carrying an unintended pregnancy to term. it is not going to cost anyone more money if that is the case the question is who is actually hurt here how is anyone being required to do any thick that interferes with their -- anything that interferes with their religious practices. come back and see us. >> i would like that thanks

8:32 am
shore, where in some spots there could be an inch or two of snow the roadways are warm, coats the ground here as we get into the late morning as this system continues just racing east and to be honest i think we will be back into the sunshine by afternoon. future cast want to do it real quick for you 10:00 a.m. this morning, indicating light snow showers dark or purple, and then it all fades off to the south and east by noon and we will be looking at sunshine by 4:00 p.m. today, it will be a quick moving event just enough to coat the ground in some spots during the morning hour here is your 5 day back into springtime. highs thursday very warm, 58 degrees, hang in there, spring is just a couple days away tony back to you. as we have been telling you as you know super tuesday is tomorrow, and google is getting a handle on what voters are concerned about now and which candidates are getting the most online hits, regionally and nationwide joining us now from
8:33 am
new york city, abbey, with google selection team good morning to you. thanks for joining us this is fascinating to me first of alltel us how google is tracking the candidates and the trends for this election cycle. well, thing about it people across the country are going to google and going to youtube looking for information about the candidates about the issues as this race unfolds so what we are looking at very broadly is what are the trends that pop up who are the candidates that keep coming up in searches as we move through this election cycle. >> before we get to candidates tell me what topics are trending most frequently. when you look at issues and this is true of dc and also other places across the nation it is the economy that just keeps coming back. it is top of the searches in terms of issues, ahead of social issues or things like immigration, national security even, when we are talking about economy searches we are looking
8:34 am
at unemployment, deficit, debt, bankruptcy things that keep coming back so gop candidates are out covering a lot of issues back home this is the one that people are searching on. >> okay of the republican candidates who leads in the searches in each of the super tuesday states. >> well, we looked across all 10 in 9 of them rick santorum searches are out in front, it is just idaho, mitt romney is leading in terms of searches we have seen rick santorum's search interest build over the last few weeks but just because some body is being searched on doesn't necessarily mean they are getting support of the people searching so, somethings we are looking at, what are related terms people are putting in when someone is searching for a candidate like mitt romney what are the things they are putting alongside his name are they positive or negative those always yield interesting results. >> so you are able to
8:35 am
characterize a search as being positive or negative. >> somethings we can look at in terms of what people are putting in ron paul gets a lot of popular searches he leads in terms of positive searches things like, neutral or positive things like how many delegates does ron paul have people looking for a ron paul rally as you move through candidates though, rick santorum and mitt romney tend to have more negative issues coming up around them for example, comments about colleges and cadillacs that have recently come up in the news, we see them come up in searches people want to know what was said. >> nationally how do candidates rank in terms of percentages of searches. >> we are looking at it in terms of related searches against each other all the time so that is how we do it we look
8:36 am
at the four gop candidates and look who is ahead and who is behind, and then we are also, we can look at president barack obama as well and see how he is gauging, as he is a sitting president very popular in searches continually the other thing we are looking at on youtube which videos really resonate from the two sides in terms of the gop we have seen more than 40 million hits, for the gop official candidate videos so far this cycle and we are still many many months away. >> so you are seeing 40 million hits for republican videos overall, and we are talking about videos that the campaigns release, commercials that type of thing. >> it is the videos the campaigns release themselves pretty interesting figure considering that a couple cycles ago there wasn't even youtube now the candidates own campaign ads, they are eventually putting online have
8:37 am
been viewed to the tune of 10s of millions of times voters this interested in the race they want to go out and find out more information about the campaign now that is the gop candidates in terms of the most viewed, candidate video of all time on youtube that is from then candidate barack obama actually a video of him going on the ellen degenres show and dancing which got something like 11 million hits and still gets hits to this day. >> so that is kind of amusing out of all the videos of political ads this is the number one candidate obama dancing on the ellen degenres show abbey thank you very interesting information as you point out does not mean that will translate into support or both, we will see how things go on super tuesday. thank you very much. >> thank you. 8:37 a.m. right now monday morning up next we will reveal our job of the day that is perfect for ice
